This past week we have focused on wellness, physical and emotional wellness. During this week you have heard about tools to help you personally and professionally but wellness is not a one a day pill! It is a constant monitoring and continuous effort. It is also about reaching out to others.

Must be Fall in SC! Catch up on the news from the Pro Bono Program with our latest newsletter, The Difference
Protection and Advocacy for People with Disabilities ( P & A) is seeking volunteers for their Team Advocacy project. This is a great project for law students as the training is not long and the actual volunteer time is limited.
As a trained Team Advocacy volunteer you will be matched with a P & A staff member. At a convenient time the Team will conduct an inspection of a community care facility. The Team will then complete a form basing the responses on their interviews of clients and observation of the staff. These reports are an important part of the system to protect those living in group homes and facilities from harm. The residents often have mental or physical limitations.
